My all-time Hammer fave. Have watched this over and over and over and will again. Just fun, beautifully shot, Caroline Munro, sword play - just perfect!

I saw THE CURSE OF FRANKENSTEIN in its original 1957 U.S. release, along with X THE UNKOWN. The tag line on the U.S. posters & ads was, "The Curse of Frankenstein will haunt you forever!" In my case, it has proved to be literally true. Yes, it was strong stuff in 1957! Yet, I count myself fortunate that I saw so many of the early Hammer Films in their original theatrical release. Since I saw CURSE at such an impressionable age, CoF and Hammer became an indelible part of me. Looking at this page, I'm led to believe that I am not alone. Like most of us, I hope that the new Hammer organization will build on the success of THE WOMAN IN BLACK. It looks as if they will respect the past, while the create something new, reinventing Hammer Films for a new century.

That UK release date does not appear to be correct. As I understand it, REVENGE was filmed at the Bray Studios in early 1958, directly after DRACULA was completed. It was not released in the U.S. until 1958. At any rate, REVENGE is the product of Hammer's golden age and it is one of their very best films. If only Hammer had made a direct sequel to it!

This was the Dracula film that captured my young imagination when I first saw it as a young boy of 8. I was frightened to my core & excited all at the same time, as I watched in awe, at Sir Christopher Lee's Stunning! Performance and the equally outstanding performance of Sir Peter Cushing as the brave heroic fearless, Dr Van Helsing. I have the dvd of this Masterpiece of Gothic horror cinema and I love being brought down memory lane to happy childhood days of watching it, with my beloved late Uncle Richard and Parents. For me this is the greatest Dracula fiolm ever made.

It's a very enjoyable Hammer film, with excellent performances from the main characters. However, Christoper Lee does come into it a bit too late; the creature doesn't appear that much in the movie either, but a decent ending to the picture, though.

Thank God for Hammer!
Even just reading the plot synopsis was a lot more fulfilling than watching the majority of films produced by Jollywood ;D
